This is the spot where I get to tell you a little about myself and how I became involved in romance fiction and crafts. I’m also a hairstylist. You could say the ability to work with one’s hands is
important to me.
I've always had an interest in romance fiction, and joined ROMANCE WRITERS OF AMERICA in the early 90's. I spent many years learning and honing my craft. Currently I belong to FROM THE HEART ROMANCE WRITERS, and about fifty other writing groups.
In 2003 I received my Pro-Pin from Romance Writers of America. This pin is given upon reaching professional writer’s status. I am now a member of PAN (published authors network).
Crafting was always a hobby for me, then one day it became more than that. I love to design and create new projects. My work has been published in ‘Crafting Traditions Magazine’, ‘Country Woman Magazine,’‘Country Marketplace Magazine,’ ‘Country Woman Christmas Book,’ and recently in ‘Taste Of Home Holiday Celebrations Cookbook.’
For six years I sent out a bi-monthly craft newsletter, and also had luck in other writing avenues.
On a personal note, my husband of forty-plus years is supportive and puts up with all my idiosyncrasies. We have two children, four grandchildren, and one feline who rules the household.
